there are lots and lots of products designed to hold water for transport in a pickup bed. Some are hard cases and some are bladders that can be stored easily.

Truck Bed Water Bladder - Ready Containment LLC. - Made in USA

To those who own an ORV with a slideout: How has the company beefed up their slideout setup to last off pavement? I hesitate to have slideouts on a trailer that will spend a lot of time getting bounced about.

We do a lot of gravel and dirt roads. That's the way we get to our favorite campgrounds! We have had our trailer (with slide) for almost two years without any trouble. You need to level the trailer first, but the slide isn't a big deal. There is a bolt that some have had back out and cause problems, but you can check it easy enough. Slides have come a long way in the 20+ years since they started appearing.

You need an old Alpenlite. My new style 1994 27ft single slide has 80,000 miles on it. Over 3,000 miles of gravel in NW Territory and Alaska. I have had it in places where i needed to get a tow from a second 4wd to pull me out. total miles on several AK trips 24,000 miles. BIG suspension and frame and wheels. NEVER a suspension problem. I even have a single wheel tlr on back to haul my Quad. Fresh water 100 gallon. black 50, grey 75. Aluminum structure frame 2inch foam walls 4inch roof , 3 inch floor. On todays used market worth about $7,000.00. If i ever lost this trailer, i would go find another Alpenlite.

I bought 2 35 gallon tanks from Tractor Supply $100 each. Put in 3/4" ball valves and garden hose attachments. With a portable macerator I can pump waste into one to haul to the dump then fill the other with fresh water to haul back. Hook up my old water pump that I replaced in the trailer and pump the fresh in the tank. If I'm not using them they store under the trailer. Works for me.

So here's a little update. This week I traded my class A and Subaru toad for a Ram 2500 4X4 and a 2014 Outdoors RV Creekside 23RKS. 66 gallons of fresh, 2 40 gallon greys, an off road chassis, and 4 season insulation.

Thanks for everyone's input.
